After sign-in, I'm not redirected to the conversation


(Nathan Long) #1

I’m part of a Discourse forum that requires login. I get emails with a summary of recent topics.

Sometimes I click to open several of those in new tabs, but each tab says “you must sign in.” After I do, each tab goes to the home screen, not the discussion I was trying to reach. So I have to close them, go back to the email, and find what I was interested in again.

I think that if I’m redirected from a conversation to the login page, once logged in, I should be sent on to the page I originally requested.

Yes, this is a known limitation. @neil had it on his list for a long time but I don’t know if we have time to do it before V1.

Ok, no problem. Just wanted to be sure that it’s on your radar. :slight_smile:

I do think we should get to this soon. @eviltrout can you add it to your list for next week?

Any update on this? :slight_smile:

This actually already worked for sites where some of the categories are private like you @cpradio.

However, it did not work on sites that required login to view anything – however, with @techapj’s latest changes, now it does! I just verified. So we should be all good here if you are on latest.

Do you know if it works for single sign on as well? It doesn’t look like it does to me. I am also not sure about oauth.

@techapj fixed this for 1.2.
